i'm finishing up the brother's k and this one is a real gem that i just came upon.  thought i ought to share:

"he said there are two ways for a hitter to get the pitch he wants.  the simplest way is not to want any pitch in particular.  but the best way, he said--which sounds almost the same, but is really very different--is to want the very pitch you're gonna get.  including the one you can handle.  but also the one that's gonna strike you out looking.  and even the one that's maybe gonna bounce off your head."   - david james (i'm going to meet him soon) duncan 

now listen to this one more thing:
"dismiss whatever insults your own soul and your very flesh shall be a great poem, and have the richest fluency, not only in its words, but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes, and in every moment and joint in your body." - walt whitman
